highway=turning_loop is used on a node to indicate a widened area of a highway with a non-traversable island for turning around, often circular and at the end of a road. This is different from a highway=turning_circle, which does not have an island. The non-traversable island may be higher or lower than the surrounding highway.

junction=roundabout should be used for roundabouts, where there are multiple joining ways.

This tag (if approved) would be applied to a single node at the end of the way.

If you trace the entire loop, special tags are not needed (use oneway=yes if such restriction is posted).

The Standard Map Style renders highway=turning_loop the same as highway=turning_circle. [1]
